Yet to read a bad thing about the KTM 350 other than, "Its not a 450"

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

That looks like an entry level mx'er. Note the crappy fork. Probably meant for the 250 class. Or maybe Honda has decided they want a whole new class.

Not as big as a 500cc yet more power than a 250?
Honda has played this hand before.

This looks like a full mx bike - note the shallow steering head angle (long trail). Honda mx bikes are really long compared to my yz and ktm. To me its a design more suited to high speed supercross or desert racing where straight line stability is key. It's odd that the yz is so tall. Much taller than the ktm 250xc but probably around the same length. My crf250r was much longer then either bikes and in fact probably the longest wheelbase bike I've ever owned.

My riding is much more technical, on the pegs, winding my way around tree trunks which have less clearance than my bars. So the KTM will be sweet for that - low center of gravity, low seat (comparatively) and moderate wheelbase.

I don't see a downtube from the steering stem down to the engine.
